Former Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor shared the sad news that his Grandpa Joe passed away.

Grandpa Joe has been an integral part of Jax’s life, and he’s posted about his love and admiration for his grandfather.

And after being married for two years, Jax and Brittany expanded their family when they welcomed their son Cruz in April 2021.

Since his arrival, Jax has been all in on the dad front and keeps his fans and followers updated on their family’s important updates and milestones.

From baby Cruz’s first steps and first big boy haircut to updates on his family beyond their little family of three, Jax shares a lot.

He updated his followers once again with the sad news that Grandpa Joe had died.
